Know your mantas!
If like us you love manta rays and you would like to know more about them, this specialty is for you.
This course is specific to the area and was developed to create awareness and knowledge about the manta ray population. We are the only ones teaching it! A great way to enhance your dive in Manta Point, Nusa Penida.
It will help you understand better manta behaviour, as well as to distinguish male from female and the different manta species.
Of course during the dives we will try to observe as many mantas as possible and put your new skills in practice!
